Be an Informed Dawg!

While this information applies to all prescription medication, we are especially concerned about the use of prescription stimulants (e.g., Adderall and Vyvanse), benzodiazepines (e.g. Xanax, Klonopin), and opiates (e.g. hydrocodone, OxyContin). While these medications can be very helpful when properly prescribed and used, they are very dangerous when misused.
